Lester was facing the death penalty after the murder and attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl, and was allowed a furlough to do some Christmas shopping in 1974. He failed to meet his prison guard at the arranged time, and has since been on the run for over 45 years.

Another added: "I would like to know who... thought it was a good idea to take death row prisoners out Christmas shopping with no guards to stand and follow them? Like who thought that was a good idea? I just wanna talk."

Fans have also been fascinated by A Death in Oslo, in which a young woman with no ID was killed in a hotel room, and has never been identified. The synopsis reads: "When a woman was found dead in a luxury hotel room in Oslo, Norway, it appeared to be a suicide. However, several pieces didn’t add up: she had no identification, her briefcase contained 25 rounds of ammunition and no one reported her missing. Who was this woman, and could she have been part of a secret intelligence operation?"
